Hey all,

Me and my partner are planning to go to Goa in about 3-4 days. We are currently in Kochi.

We're thinking of having a night in Mangalore, then continue to Panaji the following morning.

Could anyone please tell me the best (quickest) train(s) from Kochi/Ernakulam to Mangalore? I've tried the Indian Rails website, but it says no trains found, so I'm guessing that means that there are no direct trains?

Any help greatly appreciated,
nashmandu

If there's no particular reason then why don't you consider taking direct train to Goa (Madgaon) instead of Mangalore ?

Apparently quickest train is 6349 Parsuram Exp.takes 9 hours 20 min. to reach Mangalore(Arriv.20:25) from Ernakulam(Dep.11:05).But this train only has seats & no berths to sleep.

Other options :

6347....MANGALORE EXP....Ernakulam Town(Dep 1:30)... Mangalore(Arrival 11:15. )

6604....MAVELI EXPRESS....Ernakulam Jn.(23:25)...Mangalore (8:50)

6629....MALABAR EXP....Ernakulam Town(23:45).... Mangalore(10:00)
